Thank you Tall Ship El Galeon for a fantastic visit to Portland!
Tall Ships Portland now prepares for the arrival of Tall Ship Fritha and the start of its season of youth overnight sailing adventures onboard a brigantine.
Working with the Northeast Maritime Institute in Fairhaven, MA, the two organizations will offer up to 48 Maine youth the opportunity to voyage across the Gulf of Maine this summer!
The Institute is one of the premiere maritime education organizations in the nation-- placing emphasis on quality through small class-size, and producing not only excellent mariners, but excellent people as well. They continue to operate at the forefront of professional maritime development not only with internationally-approved STCW courses and licensing programs, but they now offer a degree program in Maritime Science, assuring that they will continue to live by their creed: "Honor the Mariner."
